Easter Web

Uploaded: April 04, 2006


Who says Spiders don't decorate for Easter?? (With a little help from their friends! LOL)
I shot this wonderful frost covered web (ISO 200, hand-held, with dark backdrop hung behind the web) in December, and submitted the original white frost image that same month. This version has a "Bad Dream" (plug-in) filter application for the colored effects.
The original image is also in my gallery, if anyone wishes to view it.
